Presidents Cup: Team USA continues dominant run

Man Accused of Vandalizing Greens at 4 Trump Golf Courses

The International team rallied with wins on the 10th and 13th, but Kuchar's 20-foot birdie putt provided the needed margin for victory.

The American pairing claimed their second victory in successive days in New Jersey to overcome the previously undefeated worldwide duo.

Sky Bet go 4/9 that the US come out on top in Saturday's action.

Charley Hoffman and Kevin Chappell coasted to a 6&5 win over Presidents Cup debutants Charl Schwartzel and Anirban Lahiri.

Also scoring points for the USA were Brooks Koepka and Dustin Johnson, who birdied the final two holes for a 3&2 decision over Australia's Adam Scott and Venezuela's Jhonattan Vegas, and Rickie Fowler and Justin Thomas with a 3&2 victory over South Africans Louis Oosthuizen and Branden Grace.

The only morsel scored by the Internationals was the half-point earned by Hideki Matsuyama and Adam Hadwin who squared their match against Jordan Spieth and Patrick Reed.

SATURDAY: Four matches of foursomes in the morning, four matches of fourballs in the afternoon.

After taking a 1-up lead behind a Fowler birdie on the third hole, the pair stayed ahead for the rest of the round, before ultimately closing out a 3-up win on the 16th.

While Price admits his team are facing a huge battle, the global captain said there was a long way to go in New Jersey.

Justin Thomas, already with a big year behind him as a major champion and the FedEx Cup champion, teamed with Rickie Fowler for another easy victory.

Hoffman and Chappell were three up after the first four holes, before birdies at eight and nine saw them take a five hole lead into the back nine.

Having been paired together in every team event since the 2014 Ryder Cup, the confident Texans were never behind against worldwide rookies Si-Woo Kim and Emiliano Grillo, who made just two birdies in a 5&4 defeat.

Unbeaten in four matches together at the 2015 Presidents Cup, they claimed the Internationals' only win on Thursday - 3 & 1 over Brooks Koepka and Daniel Berger. Reed holed a 15-foot birdie on the 15th, and Spieth hit his tee shot on the par-3 16th to 6 feet for birdie to square the match. Reed canned a 7-footer on 15 to end it, and the top American duo improved to 2-0-1 this week.

"We had to fight hard". "Today was a grind".

Players mingling among the fans is a trend we can certainly get behind.

The United States have won nine of 11 Presidents Cups, including the last six and if the worldwide team, comprised of players from the rest of the world except Europe, are to end the drought they will have to overturn the biggest US advantage ever after Day Two of the biennial competition.

"It was back and forth the whole day", said Day.
